Third annual Athens Area High School Battle of the Bands – January 18, 2020

The third annual Athens Area High School Battle of the Bands was held at the 40 Watt the past weekend. The Battle of the Bands is a fundraising event for the Cedar Shoals journalism staff (BluePrints Magazine, WJAG-TV, and yearbook). This year’s grand prize included four hours of studio time and mixes from Tweed Recording to have a song played on Bulldog 93.3 FM. This year’s event had a new twist: a panel of local celebrity judges to award a cash prize. AD Blanco took home the audience choice award, and Fishbug took home the judges’ choice.
